Supermoon Will Light Up the Sky on Tuesday Night

The supermoon marks a big difference from 2018, when there was no full moon in February - called a Black Moon. The moon this time was about 356,800 kilometers from the Earth. This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual.

A supermoon happens when a full moon or a new moon when the moon is at its closest to Earth.

The February 19 Super Moon is the third in a series in the first three months of 2019, after that on January 21, while tonight's will be followed by another on March 21. It will reach full phase about 29 hours after the moon reaches perigee.

Other names include "No Snow in the Trails Moon" by the Zuni tribe in the southwest, and "Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon" by the Wishram tribe in the northwest.

But American space fans will still get a great show ― and plenty of photo opportunities ― with this month's supermoon. However, this event usually has lesser attention because this kind of moon is invisible from Earth.

The opposite of a Supermoon is a Micromoon, which is the Moon at or near its apogee. Ideal locations to see the moon included those with a clear view of the eastern horizon, such as East Coast Park and Labrador Park.

The last time Earth saw three supermoons for three full moons in a row was in early 2018. The average distance between earth and moon is 3.84 lakh km.

In Depth The term "supermoon" was coined in 1979 and is often used today to describe what astronomers would call a perigean (pear-ih-jee-un) full moon: a full moon occurring near or at the time when the Moon is at its closest point in its orbit around Earth. Every year, we get 12 (or 13, sometimes) full moon. The last supermoon coincided with a total lunar eclipse that happened after sunset on January 20. The full moon in February is also known as the "snow moon" or "hunger moon," with the names attributed to folklore, but derived from the language of Indigenous people of North America, as well as European settlers.

The precise moment of this month's full moon occurred at 4.55 this morning.

"But the moon energy is still potent and powerful", said Snow Owl, who's waiting for the seven Fridays before the Holy Week in April for the annual "tang-alap", or "the gathering of herbs". This causes the moon to appear bigger and brighter in the night sky.
